Breathwork

Breathwork

I began performing breathwork when I started doing the Wim Hof Method.  I continue to perform it much the same as Wim and his students do, but no longer finish with pushups.  Instead, I hold my breath when doing Stronglifts.  I started out only being able to hold my breath for about a minute, but have worked up to being able to hold it for as long as 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

Health Benefits of Breathwork:

Reduces stress and anxiety

Improves mood

Fights depression

Improves ability to concentrate

Promotes healthy digestion

Reduces oxidative stress

Lowers blood pressure

Improves sleep quality

Below is a spreadsheet containing all the data associated with my breathwork.  It contains the following categories:
